UK Dtoider in the Midlands, I spend too much time ignoring Steamtoid, and used to spend too little time "organizing" EUFNF on the forums and c-blogs. I have a mighty underused PC, an Xbox 360 (slim), a PS2 (also slim) and a DSi (slim... I guess?) Sometimes I play games on them.
Currently a final year Media Production (BSc, science bitches!) Student, but I spend most of my time doing Student media instead. On here.
One of the last things I posted up in this bitch was some dumb video gaming content I've done for a Student Television Station. Here is some more of that. There'd be more, but I'd like to graduate (and get back into those unemployment statistics RIGHT?). EGX Rezzed is a PC and Indie gaming expo run by the same folk as the-expo-formerly-known-as-Eurogamer, and is full of lovely indie people and not so many drones as you'd get on most other show floors.
As part of my dissertation project, I've put out a short survey about Television consumption habits. It'd be nice of you if you did it for me. Go on. Do it. I'm hoping to have a varied sample, over many demographics, which are words.
Warning, this paragraph is about a kickstarter project. Sorry. I'm not particularly part of this project, but every person behind it is a friend and working hard to make it great. It's a short film written and directed by a crazy talented young lady, and there's a kickstarter to raise money for costs of distribution and entry to film festivals. It'd be very nice if the goal is met, very nice indeed. Do have a look. Please.
I'm going to have to write some more about Rezzed, or rather the people there. Talking to indie developers is almost always such a pleasant experience. The interview at the top of the page is with the four man studio (of which three are brothers) called Boneloaf, and their game Gang Beasts is looking like brilliant fun. Also, they have a boneloaf plush. That's attention to brand detail. We also got to know a little about a guy named Alan Zucconi, a lone developer and surely one of the nicest people on the planet. He was showing his game 0rbitalis, a simple astrophysics simulator with pleasing visuals. There's a video below wherein an idiot talks to him.
My favourite game of the show was Halo 2, but it was so popular and I was so busy that I didn't get a chance to play it. However, what follows is a video of #thetruth
